Something amazing is going to happen. Something will be started, worked on and finished. Why?? Because I want it to. Because there is a need. Because I saw there was a need.
I will make it happen. I have set my mind on it, and it will be accomplished. I will set the ball rolling, and I will make people's lives better. Even if it's 5 at a time, or only 1 at a time, I CAN, I WILL make a difference.
Do you feel like this? Do you have ideas and want to help? Do you see a hatless kid, or someone without a coat, or a lunch? HELP.
See litter on the ground. Pick it the hell up. The change really does start with you. Yes, Shannon, I do feel shitty about not helping out with the last Zombie Prom Date Knitters of SW MI adopt a highway pick up. To return the favor, I picked up trash at work. It's not the same, but it did make a difference, a small difference.
Our adopt a highway project is a labor of love. Like a serious labor. Our section is on I94 mile maker 84-86, east and west bound. Dude, that's like 4 miles.
NO, it's 4 grueling miles of litter, piss in bottles, arizona tea cans, possible crime scenes, and meth waste.
If Shannon (Spinsanity) wants to keep up our 4 miles, I am in. No backing out, no excuses. It's the right thing to do.
Why am I on my soap box? Because I have been slacking. I need to do more. There are needs that I see and I can help. I should help.
Are you in? Do you see something you can do, something you should do?
DO IT. Don't wait. You'll feel the relief of a job well done. You'll feel better, you'll feel lightness, and you'll want to do more.
The Zombie Prom Date Knitters recently collected hand knit/crochet hats for The Haven of Rest in Battle Creek. We have yet to deliver. This will be done by Oct 22.
I made hats for the Kalamazoo Deacons Conference. These need to be given to Loongirl for delivery by Oct 22.
Now, what is the need, where is the need? Possibly at Lincoln Elementary. I just contacted them. I will knit, buy supplies, help with reading or whatever. I want to give back to an area that has given me a job-because I can, and I should.
